2018 Aston Martin Vantage Spied: Aluminum Advantage

The time for replacing the old model from Aston Martin, a popular DB9 is here. The manufacturer announced that the new version will be 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante and numbered photos and prototype versions have been showing time to time in car magazines. Now, after we saw the first serious test driving in Sweden, we can precisely describe how this car will look like and list other important information. The first option which could be possible to buy will be a coupe version.

Exterior

Aston Martin buyers know that their cars must be in convertible version and that is something like their trade mark. That will be a case with this model, too. The soft-top roof does not leave much space for the passengers inside, but who wants more space with the car like Aston Martin at all? In defense of the designers’ pretensions to make modern and sports car, they still achieved a shape of the classic coupe, which is not that easy with the soft roof as here. It seems that designers have achieved the look of the coupe making the large and impressive rear end, with the sharp rear lights and massive rear bumper. As an addition to an intention to construct truly coupe, designers have put a whole car on the carbon fiber and aluminum base which is a norm for that type of the cars.

Interior

Besides the small space inside and announced relatively simple interior, there is no much information about the interior design and equipment. We can expect the best ones in the car like Aston Martin, but without a photo or any other information; we can confirm any of our expectations.

Engine

It is sure that the new Aston Martin DB11 Volante will be equipped with twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 with powerful 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. That is confirmed, even though the prototype had smaller 4.0-liter V8 version twin-turbocharged like on Mercedes AMG, so there are some expectations that some trim version could have this model, too. We also must mention an entry-level V8 engine on the models prepared for sale, but all of these should be confirmed when the time for selling comes.
The new DB11 Volante aims to match hardtop’s 0-62 mph sprint of 3.9 seconds.

2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante Release Date and Price

Although the manufacturer has prepared for the debut of the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante for the spring of 2018, there are chances to see it in car showrooms even earlier, perhaps at the end of 2017. Starting price is planned to be around $212,000 , which is current price for the Aston Martin coupe.
